Tools to Capture and Convert the Web

Lots of new features coming in version 3.2

23 June 2017

As you may be aware we sent a survey out a few weeks ago, asking if you wanted the ability to automatically upload captures to Amazon S3 the responses came back overwhelmingly that you do!

So that is what we have done all of our client libraries will soon support automatically uploading captures to Amazon S3, Dropbox, FTP and WebDav. To do this you will need to create a export URL that can then be passed to our API.

But we decided to add a few more features while we are at it!

The first is the ability to capture single HTML elements in PDF in the same way as is currently available when converting webpages to images.

The next new feature is that you can now make a capture wait for a HTML element to become visible using the new waitfor parameter. This should be the ideal solution for webpages that use Ajax to display content.

To increase the security of your captures we have now also added the ability to force the usage of SSL connections when making requests to GrabzIt’s API.

Finally, we have added Singapore as a new location for our capture services. This should further speed up captures of Business and Enterprise users who are using geo-targeting as well as providing developers with a new location to take screenshots from. Just pass “SG” to the country parameter to try it out.

When can you get your hands on all this goodness? Well now using the JavaScript API, we will be rolling out the changes to our other API’s over the coming weeks. If you have a request for a particular programming language, tell us and we will prioritize updating that client API first.
